Paul and his family were amazing! Perfect place, highly reccomended for both nightlife and nature tours! Booked three nights but ended up staying there for a week!

I only stayed here for a couple of nights (as I had to keep on moving) but I fully recommend this hostel. The couple here that own/run the hostel are very friendly and will make you feel at home right away. I also learnt about some of the history of the area and a bonus is that the breakfast is really good as well!

This hostel is a little away from the town, but only 5min from a great beach.This is why i came here so I was very happy. There is a great pool, but I found it a little odd sharing the kicthen and living room space with the family that own the hostel.

disappointed! the hostel info states that there is a kitchen we could use however we were told on arrival we could not use the fridge so this left us somewhat limited! It is a 'controlled' environment, the husband and wife contradicted each other in what we were and weren't allowed to do, we were told to 'leave some breakfast for the others' where a buffet was offered-very rude!, booked mixed sex rooms on the website but they they separated us int male/female. I felt like I was at guide camp!

Owner Comment (Hide)
With a full hostel there was no space in the kitchen fridge, however, the client and her group had no trouble filling our bar refrigerator with several cases of beer and other drinks! The client and her group did use the kitchen almost daily and prepared many meals! As far as the breakfast was concerned, let's just say that the client and her friends ate very well, consuming large, copious amounts of food, without much thought for the other guests, hence a friendly reminder was needed, to please have some consideration for other guests who also wanted to eat breakfast.

Residencial Das Araras is a great base whilst in Porto Seguro. Paul and the family make you feel at home the second you walk through the front door. A family run hostel, who all speak perfect English and Portugese. They are very helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as can be! Very chilled vibe at the hostel, great place to unwind and relax. A home away from home.

I strongly suggest this pousada. Paul and his family are really helpful and make you feel at home. Paul was very keen to show the guests around the city and the local area. He even took me to the nearby Indios reservation, where you can experience the environment of the Brazilian natives. In general, I was impressed by Porto Seguro. After one month traveling, it's so far the only Brazilian city I found completely safe. I could walk wherever at any time. It's a relaxed city during the day but also have a ve

Family run hostel, very friendly and helpful. I arrived late (2 am) and the owner was there to greet me. Short walking distance to the beach. Great breakfast with homemade food. Definitely enjoyed staying here. Thanks.

Very hospitable and easy-going place - if you want to chill out then this is perfect, (it's not a party place although there are plenty of nightclubs nearby for that). Lovely pool, small bar and hammocks in the garden, friendly dog and owners' kids too, and a plentiful delicious breakfast including homemade cake. Recommend the local Greek restaurant too, ask for their special flaming cheese! Paul the owner is from Virginia, USA, and is very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area.

The hostel is close to the beach and public transport.. It's clean and comfy. Paul treats you like part of his family, rather than a backpacker paying to stay there. Highly recommended!! Wish I had been able to spend longer at Residencial Das Araras! But I'll be back!
